energy was spent on health care and other things coming into the question is do you see that -- how do you strike that balance and do you see that changing as you go forward into the next four years? >> to complicate your questions about what the balance in the short term and the immediate and long-term things that matter for the strength of the economy and i think it's important to recognize that as we get to the next phase of the fiscal reform debate you have to think about this not just about how you bring them down gradually to the point they are sustainable you to think about it in terms of what can you do to improve the long-term growth in the american economy? there are things we have to do in infrastructure and education just to name to that are important to the potential of the country and are not very expensive. if we sacrifice those objectives in the interest of getting more fiscal restraint more quickly than is desirable would do damage across the country, so i would just encourage people to look at -- we want to look at things that are good for growth now and over the long
, cleaner energy, while protecting our environment. across america, these technologies protect air - by monitoring air quality and reducing emissions... ...protect water - through conservation and self-contained recycling systems... ... and protect land - by reducing our footprint and respecting wildlife. america's natural gas... domestic, abundant, clean energy to power our lives... that's smarter power today. domestic, abundant, clean energy to power our lives... oh, let me guess --ou see this? more washington gridlock. no, it's worse -- look, our taxes are about to go up. not the taxes on our dividends though, right? that's a big part of our retirement. oh, no, it's dividends, too. the rate on our dividends would more than double. but we depend on our dividends to help pay our bills. we worked hard to save. well, the president and congress have got to work together to stop this dividend tax hike. before it's too late. he loves risk. but whether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the great barrier reef with sharks, or jumping into the market, he goes with people he trusts, which
the production of clean energy, which promises to reduce the utilization of fossil fuels for power generation. and we continue to invest in potential breakthrough technologies that could further remove carbon from our atmosphere. but we haven't done as much as we need to. so what i'm going to be doing over the next several weeks, next several months, is having a conversation, a wide-ranking conversation with scientists, engineers, and elected officials to find out what more can we do to make short-term progress in reducing carbons. and then, you know, working through an education process that i think is necessary, a discussion, a conversation, across the country about what realistically can we do long term to make sure that this is not something we're passing on to future generations that's going to be very expensive and very painful to deal with. i don't know what either democrats or republicans are prepared to do at this point. because this is one of those issues that's not just a partisan issue. i also think there are regional differences. there's no doubt that for us to take on climate ch
, and clean energy, putting people back to work rebuilding roads, bridges and schools and reducing our deficit in a balanced and responsible way. on this last item, we face a very clear deadline. that requires us to make some big decisions on jobs, taxes, and deficits by the end of the year. both parties voted to set this deadline. and i believe that both parties can work together to make these decisions in a balanced and responsible way. to meet with labor and civic leaders for their input. today i meet with c.e.o.'s of some of america's largest companies. and i'll meet with leaders of both party of congress before the week is out because there's only one way to solve the channels and that is to do it together. as i've said before, i'm open to compromise and i'm hope to new ideas. and i've been encouraged over the last week to hear republican after republican agree on the need for more revenue from the wealthiest americans as part of our arithmetic if we're serious about reducing the deficit. because when it comes to taxes, there are two pathways available. option one, if congress fails to ac
think that it can be done, but, frankly, we need to change the scope of our energies and the scope of our commitments. >> you see, this is not an attempt by the republicans to do something and fail. this is the lack of the attempt of the republicans to do anything at all. the first state race, state race i ever worked on was the united states senate seat in 1996. and i asked, you know, very naively, why don't we go to black churches? well, they will never vote for us. why don't we retreat to students and young people. those people never vote. well, here we are in 2012 and that is a completely different story and we need to make the attempt. >> but what i heard al say, and what president obama won because he promised free things and i don't want to misquote you there, but i'm not sure if it is a promise of free things. when i hear people saying that they voted for president obama because they wanted things, why else do you vote for a candidate if you don't want something from the candidate? >> let me tell you something, obama won this election and everybody back up and calm down, an

is so perplexing about this, martha. so far no cause for this explosion. a spokesman for citizens energy, the power company out there, no one reported smelling gas ahead of the explosion. a local congressman says a meth lab or a bomb have been ruled out as in terms of causes of the explosion. investigators aren't saying anything but all we know that people were doing their business, in their homes at a 11:00 on saturday night and all at once the neighborhood just erupted in flames and broken glass. the bomb blast, shouldn't say bomb blast, but the blast was so powerful, people three miles away reported their homes were shaken badly. at the center of the blast you see is splintered earth and charred wood. you mentioned 80 homes damaged. 31 homes were damaged they will have to be taken down to the ground. 200 people were forced to stay in shelters overnight. martha: thanks so the people like the man we heard from he was able to save some of those lives but there were two lives lost in this. what do we know about them? >> reporter: well the investigators aren't saying anything. the local el
